The Business Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC) announced today that Bo Harmon has been brought on to lead the business organization’s political efforts. Harmon, a veteran campaign operative, brings a strong grassroots and communications focus to BIPAC’s mission of helping the business community play a more active role in the public policy process.
“If the business community is going to compete politically in this dynamic political environment, it has to start engaging more at the grassroots, employer to employee level. I am honored to join an organization that has pioneered those efforts and look forward to expanding BIPAC’s role in supporting pro-job, pro-growth candidates and initiatives at the local, state and federal level,” said Bo Harmon, vice president of political affairs at BIPAC.
“Bo’s background on the front lines of the toughest campaigns of the last decade bring tactical political muscle to our organization and will help the business community become a more effective political force. Through our Prosperity Project (P2) BIPAC members have built the largest employee grassroots network in the country. Bo’s experience leading and utilizing large scale political operations will allow us and them to more effectively advocate for pro-growth, pro-jobs policies and candidates,” said BIPAC CEO & President Greg Casey.
Harmon served as campaign manager for candidates such Senator Saxby Chambliss (GA) and Governor Bob Ehrlich (MD) and held senior roles with the NRCC, McCain for President and Gingrich for President as well as being a partner at voter contact firm Response America.
